Archie On The Future Of Music (Retro Futurism)
There have been many predictions about the future that range from 30 to 50 years ago. Of course, this is not the “Duck Dodgers in the 21st Century” or the “House of Tomorrow” that was so emphasized on cartoons. We don’t have flying cars and robots to do our dishes, but an alarming amount of predictions have come true; we can only look back and laugh.
The prediction of computers and their presence in the music making industry couldn’t have been truer. A 1972 comic of Archie shows the teens playing with music of the future, that is, 2012. It seems pretty spot on.
